Wine Spectator 93 points - Sleek and tangy, tightly focusing its cherry, raspberry and mineral
flavors on a taut frame. Finishes with intensity and a hint of black
olive. Drink now through 2018. From Oregon.—H.S. (Feb 8 2012)
92 POINTS - Wine Spectator -
“Smooth and round, with a lovely polished feel to the dark berry, cherry, licorice and spice flavors, flowing easily over finely tuned tannins, persisting expressively. Drink now through 2016.
”The enticing nose displays a complex array of cherry pie, raspberry cordial, marionberry, dried orange peel, caramel, vanilla and allspice. The palate delivers intense black raspberry, elderberry, pomegranate, rose petal, sassafras, oak spice and fine-grained tannins. The result is a wine possessing incredible power, length and complexity.
